Volume 470: debated on Tuesday 8 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many people in (a) Kent and (b) England who fraudulently obtained indefinite leave to remain were deported in the last 12 months. (173132)

The information requested can be obtained only through the detailed examination of individual case files at disproportionate cost. The chief executive of the Border and Immigration Agency wrote a letter to the Home Affairs Committee on 20 November providing the most up-to-date and robust information regarding the deportation of foreign national prisoners. A copy of this letter is available in the Library of the House.
